Degrees and Certifications:
Middle Grades English Language Arts (6th-9th) National Board Certified Teacher
I am originally from a small, farming community in southeastern North Carolina. I attended ECU to fulfill my dream of becoming a middle school english language arts teacher. After college, I moved to Wake County and taught 7th and 8th grade ELA for 9 years. At the beginning of year 10, I had the opportunity to stay at home with my children which has kept me very busy for the last five years. I am returning to teaching this year, and I am so blessed to be able to do it in my community at Four Oaks Middle School!
My husband is a pilot, and we have two children in elementary school. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time at the beach and reading.
